Peter Maude Fine Wines

2017, Domaine d'Eugénie, ECHEZEAUX

60% whole bunch and 7 new barrels out of 9. Very dense colour here. Their Echezeaux is often a bit massive though they think there is a lacier touch this year - but it is still pretty huge. The density is fine, the detail a bit less apparent though there is a good freshness and a bit more detail at the back. Dark fruit again
*** 92-95 Jasper Morris MW

Notably ripe aromas of cassis, plum, violet and Asian-style tea. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavours brim with dry extract that both imparts an opulent mouthfeel but enrobes the moderately firm supporting tannins as well and in the process renders them less prominent. This is an impressively dense wine. 91-93 Burghound.

Aromas of ripe cherries, cassis, black truffle, rich soil tones and toasty new wood. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with ripe acids and some chewy back-end tannin. 90-92 William Kelley.
